Unhappy [Q] How to shut this thing off(one S villeC2)?

This might be the stupidest quetsion ever but, I'm totally helpless.

I need to access the recovery, I flashed a rom which stucks at the boot screen, I need to flash another yet I cannot shut this thing of. I keep pressing the power button for 10secs, 3buttons starts to flash and screen goes dark. When I let it go, it restarts.

How can I power of this device without accessing the OS?

Hold it until the buttons stop flashing, about 20 seconds.

I keep pushing the button for way longer than that. Still it reboots.


Take a look

Hope this helps!

This solves it all!
